Niall O'Brien has confirmed he will keep wicket and play for the North West Warriors in this year's 50-over and three-day first class games in the inter-provincial competition.

O'Brien indicated he may also be available to play some club cricket in the North West Premiership.

His availability should alert a number of NW clubs with Coleraine, Brigade and Ardmore, amongst others, likely to be interested in signing the veteran wicket-keeper batsman.
